Das neue Release von PaperCut kommt so dick daher, dass man denken könnte es ist schon die Version für das nächste Jahr.

Anwender mit Xerox Systemen erfahren eine besondere Erweiterung. Das integrierte Scannen wird jetzt unterstützt und das Drucken von USB-Sticks kann erstmals auch bei Xerox Multifunktionsgeräten (Xerox® WorkCentre, Xerox® AltaLink und Xerox® VersaLink) gezählt und ausgewertet werden. Ein enorme Fortschritt gerade für Anwender im universitären Umfeld, die diese Funktion verstärkt nachfragen.

Hier die Erweiterungen im Detail:

  • User web interface refresh:
    • The refreshed, modern interface introduced in 17.0 on the Admin UI has been expanded to the User web interface. This latest UI update provides users with a more intuitive and clean interface.
    • Support is provided for reverting to the pre-17.2 User web interface branding via a config key (user-ui.apply-new-style). This key will be available until v18.0.
  • Payment Gateway module: The Payment Gateway pages have been redesigned in line with the rest of the User web interface. Note: You need to upgrade your Payment Gateway module to v17.2.0 or above to take advantage of the new design.
  • Branding customization:
    • The Admin web interface and User web interface login screens can now have a custom background image, background color, and Log in button color.
    • The Options > General page now provides a simple way to customize the branding of the Admin web interface, User web interface, User Client, and Login screen.
    • A Reset to default button has been provided for all customization options.

    • added the ability to permanently redact user data, to comply with the „Right to be Forgotten“.

    • The Quick find search will only search for accounts to which the Admin has access.
    • Added tooltips for the icons on the Shared Account List page.
  • Secure Print / Find-Me printing: Enhancements to Secure Print and Find-Me now make it easier to find printers and get your configuration right the first time. Changes include:
    • Improved the Find-Me configuration experience by suggesting print queues that have been configured with the same network address as the device.
    • The Find-Me destination section on the Device Details page has been clarified with the addition of a third option for a scenario where multiple queues from different operating systems are pointing to the same device.
